About the current development trend of robots


With the continuous development of science and technology, robots have more and more functions. The main development trends of robots are as follows:

1. Robots become smarter

In the next decade, due to the development of semantic intelligence, robots will be increasingly able to evaluate and respond to their environment. For example, the robot will recognize whether the object in front of it is a human or a machine. It will be able to recognize the person's expected movement, and then will re-plan its path accordingly.

2. Robots make production flexible

With the help of 3D vision software, mobile robots will be able to carry out quality control inspections on parts during transportation in the future, thereby ensuring quality control during operation, thereby minimizing waste and reducing costs. In logistics, automated mobile robots and other machines transport goods through the packaging process, while picking robots select and pack goods from conveyors.

3. Robots enter new markets

First, with intuitive interfaces and demonstrations, robots are now easier to program and redistribute tasks. Secondly, a new generation of collaborative robots can be easily integrated with workers into existing production processes without the need to re-plan the entire production line to achieve automation. Finally, the "robot-as-a-service" business model eliminates the initial capital expenditure requirement, which enables smaller manufacturers to take the first step towards robotics.

4. Robots help the elastic supply chain

Robots can also help meet social distancing requirements in factories. Finally, the use of manipulators makes local production a more economically viable option, so that manufacturers in advanced economies have greater flexibility in adjusting their supply chains when responding to global shocks. flexibility.

5. Reduce carbon footprint

Robots reduce the overall carbon footprint of manufacturing by minimizing material waste and enabling manufacturers to optimize space, thereby optimizing energy related to lighting and heating. As mentioned above, robots are a contributing factor to a shorter supply chain and can help reduce floor space.
